Otherwise the majority of the same games can be found on the PS systems, and PS3 as well. Sony has deals with many exculsive series, and they pretty much dominate Xbox is all fields(maybe not shooter-halo), and esp RPG, Xbox has nothing whatsoever . Plus Sony isnt retarded like Xbox; in such a rush for an early start, Bill Gates and Comp, released a system with many gliches, and problems, just to try to get a jump on competition. Werent PS2 and XBox like 300-400 when they first came out? Whatever if Sony can sell their product that high, let them, that just means the system is gonna be amazing. Eventually prices will fall down, and PS3 will be a good buy.
I would argue the other side. Why shell out $600 for an inferior system (processing speed) when you can get the faster system cheaper. Sony has crap first partywise, and Microsoft is slowly winning over 3rd party franchises. It's only a matter of time until Sony can offer nothing over any other system.

Re: F...The PS3

GTA4 is going to be xbox, and MS got FF onboard for at least one game (both are obviously major franchises), and they'll still be the only one with gears of war, halo, etc etc, so i'd agree with gtripp.

yeah FF XI is out already and SquareEnix is bringing an exlcusive 360 game out next year along with the trio of games coming from the team of Mistwalker who has a lot of former square employees including the director of Chrono Trigger and FF VII or atleast I think that's what his position was. it will be interesting to see how GTA4 launching for both systems on the same day will go down cuz that's been a huge help to ps2 sales as they got GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas 9 monthes or more earlier than the X-box did. and u r right live is absolutely awesome how well it's put together and it's awesome getting free downloadable trailers and demos every so often.
like I said before both systems will be pretty darn nice, but from the get go the PS3 is not worth it's price when compared to its competetion. I know I'll have a PS3 when god of war 3 and kingdom hearts 3 come out, but thats 2-3 years down the line and until then I'll be having plenty of fun with my 360 and my downloaded classic nes games on my wii.

wait, i thought GTA was exclusive to the Playstation. Did they start a contract with Xbox360 or something? The only reason i wanted a PS3 was because it could play madden and gta, if that's not the case, i might buy an xbox360.

Re: F...The PS3

The X360 will have GTA 4 in October of next year. You will be able to play Madden, GTA4, Halo 3 and the new killer app called Gears of War which comes out in November.

In regards to Sony - they still own the console market at this point but M$oft is making great strides in taking market share launching a year early and with an incredible online service that will NOT be matched by Sony. I am no fanboy by any means but I can tell you that M$oft and the X360 will own this generation of console gaming before its all said and done.

yeah, at E3 they announced GTA4 for xbox 360, among other things... no one was expecting it, but just revealing the GTA logo at the MS presser made the place go nuts.

Re: F...The PS3

I'll probably be going the Xbox route once the price comes down a bit, and I'll probably also be going with Nintendo as well. PS3 is just too overpriced coming out the shoot.

Re: F...The PS3

wii really looks good... cheap, and with the in house games (smash bros, mario, etc) and the rom archive, they've really made a nice place for themselves below the fray.

Re: F...The PS3

Buy a good video card, a decent processor, and a shitload of ram and have the best gaming machine you can get. PC games are so much better, in general than Consoles. There are only very certain types of games that play better on consoles. Racing games, and sports games. But, if you buy a controller for the comp it's exactly the same. You can even skip a monitor and set it up to go through your TV if size is an issue.

i tend to agree, but games like mario galaxy and uper smash brothers brawl won't be on a pc, and even if they were, probably wouldn't play as well with the special controller etups and whatnot.

Re: F...The PS3

Sports games can play well on your PC now that M$oft has developed their wireless controller to connect to a PC via USB. PC's are great, but you want good online gaming fun, the xbox is where its at.

u'll start to see more of that now with the costs of some games being developed going up to around $25 million a piece because exclusive games just won't be cost effective anymore and exclusive games will be predominantly those made by Sony or Microsoft themselves.
